Student Bursary Fund

Students at English National Ballet School have the passion, dedication and training to make classical ballet their professional career. Yet our inability to support all talented applicants wishing to join the School is often a deciding factor to them pursuing their professional training. Many of our students come from low-income families and find it difficult to support themselves during their three years of training. Currently, over 60% of our students require financial assistance to attend the School.

In order to maintain the diversity of our student body we must provide alternative sources of funding to this significant group of students. We can only attract the best young talent from around the globe if we can generate additional funding opportunities. To realise this mission, we must increase the financial support we give, and we need your help to fulfil this.

How you can transform the life of our students with a gift:
£5,000+ per year can make a significant difference in relieving financial anxiety for a student and their families.

£10,000+ per year can offer a 50% fee scholarship for an international student. Every young person should have the opportunity to access an excellent education. For many, the tuition fees stand in the way.

£25,000+ per year will provide a full bursary and is the life-changing gift of an outstanding education in ballet.
